DETROIT – The Detroit Red Wings today assigned defenseman Filip Hronek to the American Hockey League’s Grand Rapids Griffins.

Hronek, 21, has skated in 23 games with the Red Wings during the 2018-19 campaign, tallying 10 points (3-7-10) and averaging 18:25 time on ice. After making the Red Wings roster out of training camp, the 6-foot, 170-pound rookie logged three points (1-2-3) in six games during his first NHL stint, including his first NHL point Oct. 11 vs. Toronto and first NHL goal on Oct. 13 at Boston. During his time with the Griffins this season, Hronek has recorded 18 points (5-13-18) and 28 penalty minutes in 20 games, leading the team’s defensemen and ranking eighth overall in scoring, despite his stint in the NHL. The Hradec Kralove, Czech Republic, native recorded 11 goals, 28 assists and a team-best plus-24 rating in 67 games with the Griffins in 2017-18. The defenseman’s 39 points led the team’s blueliners and were fifth-most among all Griffins, earning him a spot on the 2018 AHL All-Rookie Team.

About Abel to Yzerman

Welcome to Abel to Yzerman, a Red Wing blog since 1977. No other site on the internet has better-researched, fact-laden and better prepared discussions than A2Y. Re-phrase: we do little research, find facts and stats highly overrated and claim little to no preparation. There are 19 readers of A2Y. No more, no less. All of them, except maybe one, are juvenile in nature. Reminding them of that in the comment section will only encourage them to prove that.
